Shivani: We were often mistaken as twins. Vibrant, energetic and full of thirst for life will aptly define our childhood. There is one incident where she got lost at a school fete, I went searching with my mom but could not find her anywhere, my mom wanted to give up but I persisted and went again to see her sitting alone and crying. The memory of her in a yellow raincoat is still etched in my memory. Poor soul, she must have been totally frightened.
Aahana: She is my mentor, the girl who everyone adored and I wanted to be like her. My sister was academically inclined and I was a day dreamer, lost alone in my world of colorful fantasies. I was a difficult child, but she never gave up on me. She nurtured and pushed me so that I could have the courage to fly higher, soar up above the clouds.
- Shivani and Aahana with their mother.
- Both the sisters enjoying a friendly banter.
We both love colorful outfits. But I don’t experiment much and stick to basics.
I love dressing up! Incidentally, I selected every sari, jewellery and makeup for her wedding. She trusts me blindly because it comes naturally to me because of my profession.
My mom’s Rani pink wedding sari with gold zari work combination is my favorite and she has an exquisite collection of jewellery. Her kundan set and diamond earrings are my favorite.
Mom’s wedding sari is my favorite, a pink with zari work. I love the zari which even after 34 years is still intact in its sheen.
- The Kundan set is a family heirloom that has been passed down the generations; Gopalika will be its next heir.
